Students: Affordable vegan cooking

Venturing to university as an independent adolescent can be exciting and daunting. Fending for yourself and trying to organise every aspect of your life can be a lot to take on, and let’s face it, a whole 10 years has passed since I left home for the same university adventure, but I can guarantee cooking and eating right is easier than ever. Freshers week is all about finding new friends, establishing yourself and joining societies of interest, but it’s important to maintain your health and wellbeing.

Sources: Calcium & Vitamin D

Through promoting a plant-based diet and the increase in veganism, the question of potential nutritional short-falls naturally arise.A diet transitioned from regular consumption of dairy and meat products may concern some with regards to calcium or vitamin D, which are both essential for the good health of bones and teeth. Good sources of calcium are typically dairy foods (milk, cheese and yoghurt), but with careful consideration and planning, there is no reason why a healthy adult cannot meet the recommended 700mg calcium per day with a highly plant-based or vegan diet.Plant-based sources of calcium include:

What does ‘healthy’ really mean?

Think about what 'health' and 'being healthy' means to you. Many picture a glowing angelic being, the owner of tight abs and firm skin, transcending through a yoga-fuelled vortex, indulgently munching on sprouted beans and truly loving the flavours of raw earth... Am I right?'Health' is the noun that represents being free from illness or injury. 'Healthy' is the verb used to describe promoting the idealism of good health. In my opinion, the word 'healthy' is over-used and misunderstood.I recall a time when I was offered a 'healthy' handmade raw chocolate bar: 'Full of nuts and seeds, it's completely sugar...

Why plant-based eating?

We live in an ever-evolving health-bribed society, with increased pressure to eat and live in a specific moral way. We are all aware that as these health expectations leave less room for error, the number of chronic illnesses and obesity-related problems increase.

The Nourish Co

One of the first projects The Moral Munch was faced with after starting this tasty journey was creating delicious health-inspired sweet treats for the newly-established vegan cafe The Nourish Co.
